The Last Zelda Commission

3 Oct

img_20171002_161045781.jpg

As you know, I had to give up commissions with my super busy schedule, however this last one slipped in before I stopped. I’m so happy the guy was such a good sport with it taking several months to complete. I’m very happy with how it turned out, and maybe someday in the near future, I’ll commit myself to doing a couple of these a year. I truly do love making them, but it’s the time. Time is an all-to-precious commodity for me these days.

Next on the docket, is binding a couple of baby quilts. Then I will be all caught up, and I can focus on my Anthems quilt! Wish me luck!

A Zelda Quilt… Jsut To Prove I’m Doing Something…

16 Nov

In case anyone thought I was slipping on my commissions… I’ve just been a sewing fool this weekend. Between my Alice in The Garden of Eden quilt, and binding a Zelda throw quilt, I have been quite the busy little sewer. I do have a little surprise for everyone later, so stay tuned!

Spending The Day Quilting

4 Jan

As the snow drifts by my sewing room window, and as I re-watch American Horror Story: Coven on Netflix, I’m wondering why I don’t spend all my spare time sewing. I’m also wondering why Anna Paquin is not on American Horror Story… One can hope for season 5! I get such a rush from watching something come together! I mean, now grant it, this quilt already had the fabric ironed and cut, so I guess that might have something to do with it. Hmmm. Oh well, I’ll just keep on sewing this together, and hopefully I’ll start the quilting on it tonight! Wish me luck!

I’ve Been Working Like A Dog..

20 Dec

I’m sorry I haven’t posted much lately. I’ve been sewing like I’m getting paid for it or something… Oh wait, I am… I’ve been sloshed with commissions and I’m down to my final two before Christmas! I actually sewed quite a bit more than what these pictures show, but it is totally amazing and I’ll post those pictures later! Wish me luck!

I Finished A Triforce Throw Quilt… 2 More Before Christmas

15 Dec

 

I know I haven’t posted anything quilt related lately, but I’ve just been so busy. I just finished this the other night and I’m mailing it out today. Now tonight I have to make a Full size quilt top to mail out on Wednesday. Wish me luck!

Busy Day! I finished A Quilt, And Started Another One

6 Dec

I finished it! 3 More Quilts to go by Christmas! I started cutting the fabric for a throw size, so hopefully that will be done by Thursday, and then that leaves me 3 days for a quilt top, and a week for another queen size. I’m going to be running on empty and may not even set foot in my sewing room after the holidays for a bit. Wish me luck!

Quilting The Triforce – I Love Variegated Thread

4 Dec

I basted and started quilting the Triforce quilt last night. I was going to do the background first, and then the bird and Triforce afterwards, but I was too tired, so I just did the bird and Triforce. I took about one third the time of doing the background, so I end up getting to bed around 3:30am. I have to work at 9:45, so I might be a little tired today, but it is totally worth it! I’ll finish quilting the background tonight, and if I’m luck I can bind it as well, then wash and mail it out on Friday.

Question for my quliter friends: Do you wash your quilts before you give them away?
